Located in a separate mansion of modern design on the shore of the lake, where there are swans. An amazing coincidence of a beautiful name and actual embodiment. Italian cuisine, not the usual recipes and skilful use of the most valuable products - black truffles and caviar, seafood. From the features of the menu, you can distinguish a calfskin and a pigeon. The dessert card is represented by a variety of desserts from blueberry pie to Napoleon's home and a raspberry souffle that melts in the mouth. A combination of high quality, service standards, design and prices.

The restaurant is a bit off the beaten path, located on one of the many islands that comprise ST Petersburg.This is a "hip" place to go, the decor very modern with high ceilings and a lot of chrome and glass. The tables are well spaced and the the service is accommodating and professional.
The food, while wonderfully described does not deliver from a flavor perspective and is way over priced. The wine list reflects the expensive menu. While somewhat enjoyable, there many other places at a lower priceYou will easily spend $ 100 PP without alcohol.

Simply fantastic place -- truly gourmet food, service, setting (garden and lake), absolutely wonderful. If it's warm outside, try to sit on the terrace, it's worth it. If you want to impress someone -- a lady or business partners -- this is the place to take them to. Expensive? Sure, like I said, for special occasions only. I was there recenty with highly sophisticated people who've been everywhere and even they were impressed. And I hear that during the World Cup it was a must place for VIPs.

This restaurant is located in a beautiful garden with an amazing view. Its even more beautiful inside!

Amazing service with that special touch and it is lovely that they play piano live.

The food was extraordinary and i really, really recommend for you to take their burrats with tomatos and some of the homemade pasta dishes. I work in an Italien restaurant and can promise the food was really a treat.

Make sure to eat here if you are looking for an amazing dinner. The prices are up there,but worth Every rubel.

The only thing i recommend for you to do is ti order a taxi home beforehand, the Krestovsky Island closes around midnight sonor is hard to get home! Make sure to pre-order transfer.

The restaurant is situated in a park with black and white swans swimming around. The pasta with truffles was incredible and service was great.
